Summary

Only since Victorian times has it been standard practice for mothers and  fathers to send their babies to sleep alone, away from the parental bed  - often in another room. This book reveals how babies who sleep with  their parents benefit by getting virtually a full night's sleep.;The  author explains the advantages of this radical form of baby care,  including its benefits for breastfeeding mothers, reviews the history of  babies in the bed and, through interviews with parents, explores  attitudes to the idea. The book also contains a fresh perspective on the  tragedy of cot death, as well as practical advice on how to sustain  your sex life, hints on safety in the bed and answers to all the common  objections. Finally, the author deals with the moment when the baby  leaves its parents' bed.

    "Scandinavia now has its own Virginia Woolf. Few get as close to the human mind as Klougart"—Mari Nymoen Nilsen, VG 
    The English-language debut from one of Denmark's most exciting, celebrated young writers, One of Us Is Sleeping is a haunting novel about loss in all its forms.As she returns home to visit her mother who is dying of cancer, the narrator recounts a brief, intense love affair, as well as the grief and disillusionment that follow its end. The book's striking imagery and magnificent prose underpin its principal theme: the jarring contrast between the recollection of stability, your parents, your childhood home, your love, and the continual endings that we experience throughout our lives. 
    A true-to-life, deeply poetic novel that works in the same vein as Anne Carson, One of Us Is Sleeping has won Klougart countless accolades and award nominations, including the Readers' Book Award, securing her place as a major new voice in world literature. 
    Josefine Klougart has been hailed as one of Denmark's greatest contemporary writers. She is the first Danish author ever to have two of her first three books nominated for the Nordic Council Literature Prize. She's been compared to a range of authors, including Joan Didion, Anne Carson, and Virginia Woolf. 
    Martin Aitken has translated dozens of books from the Danish, including works by Dorthe Nors, Jussi Adler-Olsen, Peter Høeg, and Kim Leine, among others.

    This handbook has been especially prepared for you, either a new homeowner or one who recognizes that the home needs work. In this handbook are the tools necessary for its (your home) upkeep and my sincere hope to aid you with increasing its worth. Your home is like a fine bottle of wine. First, it must be bottled correctly to have value. Your home is that bottle of wine. A bottle of wine ages to perfection when the winegrower tends to his or her wine filled bottles. The winegrower watches each bottle and turns it at precise intervals. The surroundings must be just so, if it is to mature and increase its value. Your home must also be cared for on a continuing basis if it is to be enriched and increase in value. Only you and your family can act like the winegrower. You and your family are the winegrowers, bottlers and caretakers of your home. Your attention to all parts of the home on a continuing basis will assure that the quality and value of your home will increase. You can build a heritage for your family that you, the parents, can be proud of and that your children will remember all their lives. But, how can you accomplish this when you enter into your first ever, new home whether it is a newly built home or a previously owned home that you just bought or a home that you neglected to keep up the value. This handbook provides answers to most questions that you may have regarding maintenance and upkeep of your home. The information in this handbook, if applied, will also increase the value of your home. 
    
    As with wine, its storage is important to its aging well. In Unit 1, Safe Guarding Important Papers, you will find a list of important and very important papers relating to the original purchase of your home and supporting papers, deeds, mortgage papers, catalogs, warrantees and others pertaining to your home and the things in it. You are offered several techniques for their storage as well as ideas about when to get rid of certain ones. 
    
    Wine bottles are usually kept in a climate controlled place where the temperature and humidity are good for its life. In Unit 2, Utilities, you are given facts and ideas about your concern with electric, water, gas and heating uses. The Unit has a section on each type of utility that can make a definite positive change to the costs you face with utility bills. Employing some or all of these ideas can make a difference in your living conditions. 
    
    A house neglected looses value, even if you do not intend to sell and move into a different house. This compares to a wine cellar that is neglected. A wine cellar properly maintained ensures the quality of the wine over time. If neglected the wine sours and is lost. In Unit 3, the Exterior and Property of your house and Unit 4 the Interior of your house complete the Handbook. By using the Checklists and Periodic Charts for maintenance, you not only maintain the value of the home, but in many cases increase its value. Important information is provided on each area or part of the house in three parts: 
    
    A. A layman's description tells important but not too technical data and information about the part of the house being considered. B. A checklist of items that usually go wrong with that particular part of the house is provided. It has sufficient columns to make several separate inspections over time. C. A description of the work needed to be done is provided following the completion of the checklist. 
    
    After each section an FYI list of other facts is provided pertaining to the area being considered for repair or replacement. 
    
    At the end of Unit 3 and Unit 4 there are Periodic Tables that list each item (part of house), what to look for monthly, each spring, each fall and after a severe storm. 
    
    FYI here is a list of the items Parts of the house covered:

    Finally, a book that you can feel good about not reading. 
    Have you ever bought a book that you never seem to get around to actually reading? And now it sits on your shelf, desk, nightstand, e-reader, or even floor unread. Perhaps you look at it every so often and think "I really should read that book." But you never do. 
    Don't Read This Book solves that problem. It is a book designed not to be read. Utilizing a panoply of devices, the author actively attempts to get you to stop reading the book. 
    In a world of "fake news" and "fake reviews," Don't Read This Book is a welcome respite. It is precisely what it appears to be: there is no hidden message, no moral of the story, and indeed, no story. Instead, from start to finish, the book demands, begs, and cajoles you to not read it.

    How did you first learn about sex? If you grew up in the 1970s, it may have been from a gleefully lusty tour guide named Xaviera HollanderIn the late 1960s -- that era of sexual chaos, when Playboy Clubs and love-ins were competing for national attention -- a beautiful, intelligent young Dutch secretary named Xaviera de Vries moved to New York, grew swiftly tired of her desk job . . . and soon became the most visible and glamorous madam the city had ever seen. As Xaviera Hollander, she published a shockingly candid account of her life behind the brothel door. The Happy Hooker shot straight to the top of the bestseller lists, sold more than fifteen million copies, and made this enterprising young woman an international phenomenon. Thirty years later, these delightfully explicit tales of the '60s and '70s swingers' scene -- including countless jaw-dropping stories of lesbianism, bondage, fetishism, and more -- remain as titillating as ever, charged with the mix of shrewd observation and uninhibited appetite that made Hollander an irresistible storyteller. The Happy Hooker is a classic: the world's greatest book on the world's oldest profession.
